initially come out high. their tax subsidies available. let me play for you what jay carney said this morning to your point about young people and whether they'll sign up. >> there's a silver lining here when it comes to young people an young people are important to this working. it was always the case, no matter how good the website was going to be, that young americans were going to be the last group to sign up. i don't know about you in college or everything i did when i was young as last minute. >> well, i'm with jay carney on that one to the extent that i was a procrastinator and never wrote my paper until the last paper. does he have a point, though, we don't know right now that the accusations you're making are speculative? >> here's what we know, chris. and i think we can find common ground here. we know that we were promised that this website would be working great and it's not and it is a total mess. >> and the white house would concede that. >> we know that the president promised -- okay, fine. they keep saying and they keep saying. we know that the president promised
house press briefing room, jay carney had to explain the president's poetry in prose. >> the president said, a very simple statement, using the present tense. if you like the plan that you have, you can keep it. period. >> again. >> if you like the plan you had in 2009. >> i understand what you are saying. i can simply say that -- that was consistent with what the president had been saying since prior to the passage of the affordable care act. it described. he was describing what was written into the law which is that we would, the law would grandfather in those who had insurance and liked it and wanted to keep it even once the affordable care act was implemented. and i understand that yeah, there is more to that story. because of choices that insurance companies made to change the plans that individuals might have had. >> also, today, in a house ways and means committee hearing, republican chairman, dave camp asked head of center for medicare and medicaid services about this all. >> i want to mention a letter i received from my district. and this man wrote me and said, my wife has bee
a look to the right of your screen. there was bo video bombing jay carney. so there he was, morning bo. and that's something you can't make up. it is something that can make you smile going into the weekend. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> the hate obama party. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. this hatred of the president has sunk deeper and deeper into the republican blood stream. to be a member of the gop in november 2013 is to be a member of the h.o.p., the hate obama party. you must not only oppose him, but everything with his name on it. you must not only hate the president's health care plan, you must support any work of sabotage. the goal is to blow up the program. whether by denying people information, refusing to have your state participate, talking the young people into how to avoid accountability. this is what the enemies have been doing since they first learned of his election just as the southern states began moving towards secession. well, tonight the hate
. over the past couple of days, some of the people involved david axelrod, jay carney suggested that was never a consideration. was this a big deal or not a big deal? >> a big deal in the following sense. have you a presidency at the low point, after the last round of budget negotiations in 2011. the president's poll numbers are down. he's seen as weak. bill dal y, white house chief of staff at the time, look, we have to consider, as he said the other day, we have to consider every option. one thing to look at, do the due diligence, lets test it, lets see how obama clinton does compared to obama/biden. now, when the results came back it showed it didn't help that much and didn't go forward. but it is sort of extraordinary. if you think about the white house chief of staff, the top advisers. it was a very small group that knew about this david plouffe, axelrod, the president's pollster. for that group of people to say, look, we need to take a look at this, even though they knew it was a long shot and there would be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administ
this is a -- it was a very difficult period politically. >> here's jay carney responding to the report in the book coming out tuesday. >> it's important to know that campaigns and pollsters as part of campaigns test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have laughed it out of the room. joe biden has been an asset to this president in two campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. >> well, chris cillizza is an msnbc contributor. and michael scherer for "time" magazine. chris, i want you to first get in on this. there's one way to play it down. i guess that's what bill daly was doing. not denying it. the key is he accepted the fact of this book that there was a set of focus groups taken, there was money spent to try to decide whether to dump the vice president who was close to bill daly personally and close to the president. they were that worried that they conducted all this research to dump him. and then they decided after getting the research, not deciding ahead of time we love this
theresa, some are jumping on a statement by white house press secretary jay carney today as alleged proof that the president is seizing health care from honest americans. take a listen to this. >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. maternity care is covered, prevent active services are comfort, mental health services are covered. the insurance policy you buy doesn't have an annual limit or lifetime limit. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards, and therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> so people won't be able to be ripped off by substandard plans. what a pit. but is this the line of -- is this line of attack proof that the website will be fixed and republicans then will really have to move on? >> not only do they realize that. let's take a step back and see who they put ahead now to fix this -- the computer glitch. it's jeff zients. jeff zients headed up the advisory board, a health care company that pulled together best prac
in the individual market. >> jay carney at the briefing effectively said -- >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. >> they can't be dropped for a richer package of benefits. >> maternity care, mental health services. >> this is government-run health care. >> i'll never stop fighting to help more hard-working americans know the economic security of health care. ♪ >> don't you worry. we will get to health care momentarily. but it is a very busy day in the capitol with a double dose of major congressional hearings, and challenges on twin fronts for the president. issue number one. oversight of the nsa. you are looking live right now at the house intelligence committee holding a hearing on that very issue. witnesses include the director of national intelligence, james clapper, who sounded a wri note on the outrage over u.s. international spy efforts. >> i have to say, chairman rodgers, some of this reminds me a lot of the classic movie "kasa blanka," my god, there is gambling going on here. the same thing. >> indeed it is. the president f
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
